        Hey ladies!

        I'm considering DPA for an April 2010 wedding. Just wondering if all of you brides who have been dealing with DPA would recommend them? I've been reading some threads where people were talking about going offsite for reception and I"m going to have around 60 poeple so I don't want to do that, but also would like a package that includes almost everything! Does anyone know the approx. taxi cost to get to Playa from this resort? Is it in the middle of nowhere?

        Thanks for your help!

          Okay, so after about...hmm..4-5 months of deliberating, and researching, we finally reserved a date at DPA! We're getting married on July 16, 2009...so not too much time to plan. I'm sooo excited!!! We just need to pay the $500 deposit...kinda tough when its Christmas time..and after converting its $610 CDN. Oh well, good thing I saved for it :)
          now..what to do from here..

            Kimmy44--Not sure what the cost of a taxi would be to Playa, but I was told that DPA is only 15-20 minutes south, so not in the middle of nowhere...I like the fact that it is not in the middle of Playa or Cancun, and therefore less hectic. As far as your reception goes, when I was researching resorts, it seemed like there was always additional charges for groups above 20-30 people...So for 60 people I would expect additional charges at any resort, regardless of their package.

            sg1307---Congrats on setting a date You are getting married 2 days after I am! There is another bride on this forum getting married that week, too...hopefully we can all keep each other on track! I need to get invitations sent out ASAP...that is my project over the holiday break...

              AlliMay - that is awesome! I'm hoping to get invites done over the break, too. Key word being 'hoping'.

                  Hi everyone! Add me to the list of PA brides. Wedding date is set for May 18, 2009. So nervous, and with the holidays I have been so busy that the wedding was put on the back burner for almost 2 months! Eeek!

                      Hi girls! I am back from PA and it was awesome. The people are so nice and the location is great. WE went into the little town a few times and walked around the marina. If your friends are into swimming with the dolphins or fishing it is right in the marina and a 4 minute walk.
                      As far as the hotel itself it was a great experience. The food is outstanding-I think I gained 5 pounds. The staff is so nice and they go out of their way to help you with anything.
                      The wedding gazabo is really pretty and it located on the beach that is not as crowded. I'm not sure if they would let you have a reception at El Patio but that is literally right next to it-the bar is not too far from this either.
                      The gym is brand new-a bit hot but good equipment.
                      What else can I tell you? Ask me a ton of questions...
                      Also the concierge staff (Gaby and Sylvia) are awesome and the manager Oscar is great!
